  • Mom dont panic yourself yet.

    They are still tiny. My dd is 3 and has autistic tendancies and YES lack of eye contact is a sign.....BUT he sounds fine to me.

    Just keep a watch on him for the next year and you will know for sure.

    Till then, enjoy your babies.

  • as long as he does everything else that he should..I wouldnt worry to much.ask your dr about it to get more information.Do you try and get him to look at you(i'm sure you do)sometimes its hard to get babies attention.They do know how to ignore you.dont worry to much.Just keep doin what your doin!

  • Honestly it just sounds like he is more curious about his surroundings than your girl. Totally normal. I would not worry as long as everything else seems ok.

  • i have 2 year old twins and they are much differant, even when they were born they were already differant, one son is very active and has been since day one the other is much more laid back and when the one that is laid back was 6 months he had the same thing he just wanted to look around, they are both fine they just do things differant. i wouldnt worry but like mom2twobabes said just keep an eye on him.
